  10. 10
    We are looking for this option that says "Keep WiFi on during sleep." What it's got selected is "Always." "Always," whenever the HTC One M8 is asleep, the WiFi will still be connected
    .
    We will still be able to receive Notifications and we'll still have our apps working. But maybe we want to turn these off, especially if we aren't using the HTC One M8. We might want to save battery. But also we may just like to receive Notifications when we actually look at the phone and when we actually turn it on and activate it. Then we will receive our Notifications because WiFi will turn back on again. That means when the phone is asleep we won't be disturbed by Notifications. If we want to change this, just press down on this section.

    Now we have three options
    .
    We have "Always," which is currently selected. We can see the green circle that is selected on the right-hand side of the screen. The other options are "Only when plugged in," and "Never" and this "increases data usage." We can choose the option that's right. If we want to, just press down on any one of the sections.

    We can see that it will change the option
    .
    Now it says, "Only when plugged In." If we want to change that again, just press down on the section.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can see that the green circle has moved and choose the section that's right
    .
